Kevin first turned us onto Pandora a while back and it has become my favorite way to listen to music anytime I have a WiFi connection.  It is uncanny how Pandora takes a suggestion from me about different music that I like and offers me up a mix that is superb.  I have discovered a lot of music I would never have found that I like a lot.  The only wish I’ve had about Pandora is to break the constraint of living in my browser and go stand-alone.

Our Freeware of the Moment is a third party application called OpenPandora that not only frees Pandora from my browser but adds some cool new features as well.  Just take a look at all the stuff OpenPandora adds to an already great service:

  • Hide to tray
  • Popup tray notification balloon
  • Full control from tray icon
  • Control with multimedia keyboard
  • Global shortcuts
  • Mini Player
  • Integration with Last.fm
  • Integration with Microsoft Messenger
  • Integration with Xfire
  • Lyrics

OpenPandora is donation-ware so if you like it drop some coin on the developer.  Don’t overlook the Microsoft Messenger integration, it is very cool.

  3. Well, I had seen the post previously about Pandora, but when I saw this and finally checked it out, I was amazed. I have heard so many great new bands, and it is incredible how great a job it does reading my music preferences.

    Thanks for this headsup James and Kevin!
